TUNICA, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is investigating the death of an inmate at the Tunica County Detention Facility.

WREG-TV (https://bit.ly/2a6HjY0 ) reports 37-year-old Donald Clay was found dead in his cell Wednesday. He was arrested earlier that day on a domestic violence charge.

All deaths in the facility are first investigated as a homicide until proven otherwise.
